Get involved, give back…make a difference.
Last year, our 570+ amazing volunteers provided over 15,000 hours of service, expanding our reach and capacity in the community while also providing constant support and innovation. All of these services and many more are provided at no cost to cancer survivors and their families. At Cancer Services, we are able to help people who have cancer and educate the community on wellness and cancer risk-reduction because of dedicated donors, supporters, and volunteers.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the agency. We would love to have you as a volunteer too!
Front Desk Volunteer — This volunteer position answers the phones and greets clients. It is a regular weekly volunteer assignment, either in the mornings or afternoons one day a week. In addition, we need volunteers trained on this position that can fill in when one of the regular volunteers is unavailable.
Care Team Members — We are in need of volunteers who will assist our Patient Advocates by making follow-up calls to clients. We try and touch base with our active clients about once every 3 months. We prefer, but do not require, to have volunteers that are cancer survivors make these calls.
Office Support — We are in need of volunteers to assist with office work – filing, making copies, putting together client folders, sorting laundry, stocking the mastectomy supplies, etc.
Laundry — We are in need of volunteers to launder the donations of hats, scarves, mastectomy bras, sheets, etc. that we receive. Depending on the volume of donations it would be 1 basket every week or two weeks.
Health Fair Volunteers — We need volunteers to represent our agency at Agency and Health Fairs in the community.
To begin volunteering, contact Sue Kirby or Malek Rais at 336-760-9983 and we’ll talk through ideas to help match your skills with our agency and client needs.
You can complete the online application and we’ll get in touch with you. You can also print the application and mail it to us or bring it by our office to begin volunteering. We look forward to meeting you!
